Don’t confuse yourself with vocabulary, tenses or different ways of saying the same sentence! When you’re new to a language, start with learning the basics and get good at small phrases first.
Holiday phrases are a good start, because it gives you an idea of how it feels to speak the language and means that you can communicate on a basic level with native speakers. Even if you’re asking for a pint of beer! At least you’re making progress.

Gradually, you’ll see improvements over time. It all begins with starting by learning small phrases and going from there!
Many people who start learning a new language tend to forget to integrate it with their lifestyle. This means that they have difficulty finding spare time to practice what they’ve learnt and continue on the learning process.
In order to get good at any language, you’ll need to make plans to immerse yourself in it. This way, over a 3 month period you’ll be able to speak it confidently.

Meetup regularly with native speakers of the language.
Download a language app on your phone so you can practice it whenever you have a spare few minutes.
